The Xbox One is going to get better

She turned me in to a newt!

Right now, the Xbox One’s system software isn’t quite as fluid and functional as it should be. Its friends, party and chat system is effectively broken, and the standalone apps that replace basic, intrinsic functionality that users were accustomed to on the Xbox 360 make things slower and more cumbersome than they should rightly be. It’s going to get better.

Responding to a number of suggestions on Reddit on how to improve the Xbox One, Xbox Live’s director of programming Major Nelson (Larry Hyrb to his mum) assured Xbox One owners that things are going to improve.

"I had a meeting today about much of this and I can say that things will get better. I can’t offer a timeline of a list of what till be addressed first, but we are aware of the issue and things will get better."

In addition to that an exhaustive, community led feedback site detailing just about everything that’s wrong with the Xbox One right now has been shared with the right people, says the Major.

If you can remember all the way back to 2005, the Xbox 360 was a very different thing to the fully featured (though noticeably slower) console we have today.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
